New Mail Chimp 

By on

We've been sending out Newsletters on a regular basis for a few weeks now.  To do this we have been using Google's Feedburner service.  While Feedburner is a fantastic product (and free of cost), to improve delivery we have changed to a paid service.  All Newsletter and update emails are now being delivered by mailChimp (http://mailchimp.com).

maiChimp provides greater flexibility over how we can present emails and control the delivery.  With Feedburner an update email went out every time a new post was added to the site;  with mailChimp we currently have it set set to deliver a summary of site activity as a weekly Newsletter.  We also have more control on the look and feel of the emails (hopefully subscribers have already noticed this). 

Old Feedburner subscribers have been automatically transferred to mailChimp.

Before leaving, if your not already subscribed to our Newsletter and site updates, why not do it now.  You can use the SignUp box below and it's all done in 30 seconds.  Later if you ever change your mind [not that we would expect you to] and want to unsubscribe, it only takes one click (every email sent has an unsubscribe link).
